Congratulations, I believe you win the bonus points - although TBH it's
impossible to make out exactly what the machine is, and there's a
disturbing lack of pictures of Prestel terminals out there on the 'net (so
c'mon Witchy, get some better pix of that Tandata of yours!).

For info, the pic is showing an early Home Banking system, which IIRC was
run by Natwest, or maybe Lloyds, or BoS; I forget now, and the picture
doesn't make it obvious.

My caption was:

"In the good old days, ladies operated computers side-saddle."

Cheers, Ade.
Be where it's at, B-Racing!
